Lamar said that no rapper should be calling themselves the best if they need help writing the music that they perform. "I called myself the best rapper. I cannot call myself the best rapper if I have a ghostwriter," K. Dot said. "If you’re saying you’re a different type of artist and you don’t really care about the art form of being the best rapper, then so be it. Make great music. But the title, it won’t be there."
Kung Fu Kenny also gave his definition of a wack artist, which actually made a lot of sense to us. He said: "A wack artist uses other people's music for their approval. We're talking about someone that is scared to make their own voice, chases somebody else's success and their thing, but runs away from their own thing. That's what keeps the game watered-down.
"Everybody's not going to be able to be a Kendrick Lamar. I'm not telling you to rap like me. Be you. Simple as that. I watch a lot of good artists go down like that because you're so focused on what numbers this guy has done, and it dampers your own creativity."
